"Love You Sis" Birthday Card


Welcome to my studio. Today my card is one that I made for my younger sister.....this stamp reminds me of us together when we were young. Followed the sketch shown on the right. Colored the image with Copics and used 2 pattern papers for background...one with hearts for love to my sister. Made flowers using die cuts and punch with brads. This is a larger card than I usually make but the size of the stamp needed the space.

For these challenges:
Wags n Whiskers: Theme is With Love...Stamp is "Love You Sis" and  paper has a heart theme.
Card Positioning Systems: Sketch 201
Timeless Tuesdays: GO BIG! The challenge is to create an over sized card… something that is at least 5 by 7″! My card is 5.5 by 8.5".
Bearly Mine: Recipe Challenge-3 flowers, 2 design papers and 1 image.
City Crafter Challenge: Use handmade flowers on your project. Made with die cuts and punch with brads.
Basic Grey Challenge: Challenge is dots and spot.  Basic Grey papers from Hopscotch have dots and spots as well as the boots in the image. Also used Basic Grey brads.
Cute CardThursday:  Recipe- Use 1-2-3 recipe. Mine is 1 image, 2 Designer patterns, 3 Flowers.
Oldie But Goodie Challenge: Bright and cheerful.  This stamp meets the old requirement of 6 months and is a rubber stamp.
Pollycraft Monday Challenge: Sweet Pastel Colours
